Work by more than a dozen photographers from Argentina, Denmark, Korea, France and Russia makes up ''International Discoveries IV,'' the latest exhibit at FotoFest. The group's curators travel the world in search of new and undiscovered talents, hand-picking several photographers to showcase during the ongoing ''Discoveries'' series. Among them is Belgian/French artist Patrick Gries; the exhibit includes his Milu KUJAGA, a straight-on portrait of a young albino boy from Gries's In/Visibility series. There's also Argentine photographer Fernando Di Sisto, who contributes Untitled, a geometric composition showing a close-up of a concrete and tile building, from his series Uno.
Via press materials, FotoFest Senior Curator Wendy Watriss says, ''The emergence, growth and interconnection of nonprofit photography festivals and commercial trade fairs across the world have made it possible for artists to move around and curators to find new work all over the world. This exhibit showcases…new work and new talent and connecting artists to opportunities across borders.''
